Our first trip to Lennox Head and well worth the journey. We stayed in our camper trailer in the Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park and not having been before we booked a site over the internet. Once we arrived we realised the site would probably not suit us as, being the start of school holidays, the sites at the front of the park were pretty full up. We asked if there were any other sites available and were directed to another site which was at the back of the park and perfect for us. The sites were very large (I think we could have set up two of our camper trailers on the one site). It backed onto bushland - there was a dirt road about 50 metres behind the bush but not a lot of traffic went by. It was quiet and not far to walk to the amenities block. There was abundant bird life and lots of native trees. A short stroll across the road to Lake Ainsworth, which is a tea tree lake and also next to a patrolled beach with a surf life saving club. Plenty of very good cafes and small shops were within walking distance and we were lucky enough to see echidnas, dolphins and whales just while strolling. A bit of a sleepy hollow about to be awakened, a short drive to Ballina to the South and Byron to the North. Definitely happy to return to this park for our next camping holiday.
